Dr Kofi Amoah, President of the Ghana FA Normalization Committee has refuted claims that they have asked FIFA to extend their mandate.

Multiple reports have emerged that the Normalization Committee are planning to seek for an extension when their term in office ends.

Following the appointment of the four-member committee to run the day to day affairs football in the country last year, FIFA tasked them to work within a period of six months which elapsed on March 31, 2019.

However, Dr Kofi Amoah in an interview on the Joy FM described the reports as fake.

“We have not sought any extension from FIFA, FIFA has not informed me or any of the Normalization Committee members of any extension. We are doing our job till the end of March 2019. All these rumours and people posting articles on Facebook are hoaxes.”

“I think the media people must also know how to check facts. Go to the Fifa website and get the veracity so that you can educate and inform the public.”

The Normalization Committee was appointed by FIFA in August to run the day-to-day activities of the sport in the country following Ghana FA's dissolution in June due to corrupt practices.
